Garden waste collection service

Food waste

If you subscribe to the garden waste collection service, you can put food waste in your garden waste bin. This is because all green waste collected within the green bin will continue to be processed at the In Vessel Composting Facility at Ufton. Warwickshire County Council advise that food waste found in the garden waste bin will not be treated as contamination at this time.

Food waste can also be put in the black bin. This is because we're not allowed to charge for food waste collection.

About 85 per cent of food waste is put in the black bin. In fact, on average half of all waste collected in the black bins is food, and around half of all food waste put in the black bin can be composted at home.

Residents can save money by reducing the amount of food that they waste by following advice of campaigns such as "love food, hate waste".
